Each session will vary according to the problems of the client. Where possible the client will begin lying supine on a treatment table, moves will be made over the lower back and legs, then upper back and shoulders. The client will be asked to turn over, again initiating the same light moves to the legs, torso, neck and head. Bowen can also be performed whilst sitting on a chair or when treating babies the guardian would be asked to hold the child. One of the features of the work is that between sets of moves the therapist will leave the room for a few minutes and allow the client to relax and process the information. The breaks give the nervous system a chance to establish the correct actions. In the process other information can be gathered by the body and it is common for areas not being directly treated to respond to the treatment – the treatment is holistic, benefiting the whole body. The moves aren’t painful and so therefore enabling the client to relax and enjoy the treatment. Reactions to treatment are not uncommon and are all part of the healing process.
